Steph – Uptown

I’m Stephan (but you can call me Steph!) and while I’m originally from the midwest, I found myself in New York to pursue opportunities in the music industry. Outside of dog walking, I manage a record label and work as a songwriter. Beyond work, I love hiking with my pup, getting out of the city for a bonfire or two, and playing video games!
My love for dogs has always brought me to seek time with them. Growing up, I’d babysit my friends’ dogs, and in college, I worked as a handler at a doggie daycare in Boston. Last year, I started my NYC dog walking journey before COVID hit. These days, I am lucky enough to share my life with a beautiful, sweet pup of my own, Arrow! Raising him has been such a gift, and I’m grateful for the opportunity to learn new training techniques and continue to grow our bond with each other.
As a dog parent myself, I understand how important your pup is. Your dog is a part of your family, and as such, you need a walker who will see your dog as an individual, get to know their personality and quirks, and pay careful attention while on walks. It is an honor for me to be able to do so, and I’m very much looking forward to getting to know and spending time with your pupper!
